Jefferson City Occupational Disease Claim Lawyer
Missouri’s workers’ compensation system provides benefits to employees who suffer from an occupational disease, most often caused by working with chemicals or other hazardous substances. Other occupational diseases can be caused by the type of work performed, resulting in chronic pain, fibromyalgia, hearing loss or other on-the-job injuries.

Experienced Workers’ Compensation Representation
At Carson & Coil, we have more than 60 years of experience, and we provide quality, personal representation to injured workers who need help filing a successful workers’ compensation claim. We realize that occupational diseases develop over time, and often years will pass before a chronic condition becomes noticeable. This can make obtaining benefits more difficult, which is why having a knowledgeable attorney on your side is so important.
Our firm is here to fight back against insurance carriers who question the cause of your condition or deny benefits outright to deserving individuals. We will work hard to prove the cause of your occupational disease, and we will ensure you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
Common Occupational Diseases
Specific occupational diseases are highly dependent on the working conditions an employee is subjected to each day. However, occupational illnesses can affect office workers just as easily as a person who works with chemicals or other dangerous substances. Some common conditions and causes associated with occupational diseases include:
- Asbestos-related illnesses and lung disease
- Radiation poisoning
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Benzene exposure
- Cardiovascular complications
- Central nervous system damage
- Mental health complications
This list reflects only a small sample of many potential causes and conditions related to work-related diseases. If you believe your employment resulted in any type of illness or condition, speak to one of our experienced attorneys to discuss your options.
